Three in the Attic apparently starts out to be a tragicomedy about physical sex vs love. It is littered with padding optical effects, hampered by uneven dramatic concept, and redundant in its too-delicious sex teasing.

Three in the Attic apparently starts out to be a tragicomedy about physical sex vs love. It is littered with padding optical effects, hampered by uneven dramatic concept, and redundant in its too-delicious sex teasing.

Author Stephen Yafa disowned the pic. Screenplay tells of Christopher Jones, a college campus lover type, who gets hung up on Yvette Mimieux. He won’t admit he loves her (that is, beyond the physical aspects), and adds Judy Pace, a Negro charmer, and Maggie Thrett, a Jewish hippie, to his harem.

The gals learn of the bed rotation plan and lock Jones in an attic, where they attempt to exhaust him with regular, clock-timed sex visits.

Acting is amateurish, save for Mimieux, who tries and slightly succeeds.
